Acupuncture is actually is the tapping of the power which is already within us. Now for example, you have a certain power in your stomach. All right? Now this power is continuously supplied to your other organs in the stomach. All right? It is used for that. Now through the sympathetic nervous system, the parasympathetic stores it and the sympathetic uses it. Now supposing there is a disease in the stomach. So now the energy in that vital energy, in that particular center, is sort of exhausted or is much less. So what do they do? How to get well that person? They take from another center divert it and put it there and that’s how if they try to cure that. But by that they create an imbalance because you have a limited area. You have a limited, absolutely limited, energy. Now this limited… supposing you have a limited petrol and another car you find whose petrol is all finished. Now if you push the petrol into another car maybe that car will go half way and you will also go half way finished. You understand my point? So both of them reduce your longevity. So it is the extraction of the energy which is within us, which is limited.
Sahaja Yoga is a very different thing. In Sahaja yoga* your Kundalini rises and connects you with the all-pervading power. So all the time you are getting power, the vital power within you flowing. And there is no sort of dearth of that power. It’s all the time flowing, the grace. But here when you tap one energy to another there’s no proper understanding how much to give, how much to balance. And there is no need at all. Once you are a realized soul supposing somebody has a stomach trouble you have to just put your hand on the stomach finished. That’s the way you can cure. You can cure cancer, you can cure anything. Because you become the source of that energy and your energy is not limited, you are getting energy from the all-pervading power. You are connected with it so what ever you are doing it’s just flowing like that and you just become a witness of that power which is flowing. So you don’t have to mismanage, mishandle anybody.You just look after that part which requires energy and you raise the Kundalini and give realization to that sick person; also so that he can give it to another….
You should take to Sahaja Yoga. All right?? Now give up that Acupuncture for a while, a horrible stuff. It’s sinful, I tell you; it spoils Kundalini of others. Their chance to realization is diminished. You would not like to do something like that. It’s very wrong, it’s very wrong. It attacks the base of human beings. Any one of these, any one of them is just the same. You can learn Homeopathy. Homeopathy is better. Thousand times better than this, if you want to cure people. Homeopathy is better it is much more congenial to human nature. You can learn Ayurvedic you can learn any one of these things. But, I cannot understand this acupuncture at all….
